Welcome Back!!!

It’s a new semester here at ETSU and a new semester for the women’s studies program and feminism. For some of us the semester has been off to a rough start, but nothing is really accomplished without a little hard work. As you may have already noticed there have been some changes with the blog and this semester we hope to keep it updated with at least one post a week to inform all of you what’s going on with the program. This year we will continue to host our lecture series Women on Wednesdays, so look forward for future posts about this lecture series. We would also like our students to feel free to submit writings/articles to post here on the blog, if you are interested in posting on the blog please submit your work to at garnetts@goldmail.etsu.edu!

This is the first blog of the semester so first and foremost I would like to take this oppurtunity to extend a warm welcome back to all of our students and faculty. I hope to see our program expand even further and continue to challenge and change minds. Here’s hoping for a good semester of feminist activism on and off campus!

Believe in yourself and believe in the people who believe in you! Welcome back everyone!!!

About etsuwomenstudies

This blog is a collaborative effort from the students, faculty, and feminist souls in the East Tennessee State University Women's Studies Department. We simply want to share daily thoughts with the world and encourage not only feminist thought, but awareness, tolerance, diversity, equality, justice, and social progress. Women's Studies is an exciting, interdisciplinary area of study that celebrates women's lives. It examines how diverse women have contributed to history, social processes, culture, politics and economics, as well as how all of these have shaped women's experiences. Our program provides new ways of looking at common assumptions about femininity and masculinity and teaches students how to connect what they study with how they live and work. We also explore how gender intersects with ability, age, class, culture, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion, and sexuality. Our Leadership through Diversity focus promotes a creative struggle for justice and equality. We train graduates to be leaders in both civic engagement and the workforce. The Women's Studies Program at ETSU is comprised of dedicated faculty and staff and socially conscious students coming together from a wide range of disciplines.
